Osteopathy emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function in the human body. Osteopaths are functional anatomists who use manual therapy. They find health, rather than focus on disease. Osteopathic treatment works to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impluses and the circulation of body fluids. Our role is to encourage the body's natural self healing processes by removing all obstacles and obstructions that interfere with proper nutrition and drainage of the body's tissues. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners are trained to work exclusively without the use of drugs or surgery by using manual methods for structural assessment and treatment.
Who will benefit from Osteopathic Manual Treatment?
Osteopathy is a safe and effective form of treatment for a wide variety of patients with a wide variety of problems. Patients range in age from infants to the elderly and include everyone in between!
Chronic pain can occur in the spine or other areas from repeated strains of daily living (job or lifestyle-related) or it can be from an older issue from your past. Get help to feel your best so you can live pain-free with better range of motion in your whole body!
Old and new injuries set up other problems in the body due to the compensation process where your muscles and joints are trying to give you full range of motion despite the main issue that you have. With Osteopathy ALL involved areas are given treatment, not just the main area of complaint... helping you get better... faster!
From chronic conditions like arthritis and general inflammation to acute issues like a more recent body injury, Osteopathy clears restrictions around joints and tissues to restore blood flow and healthy nerve supply. This serves to increase nutrient and oxygen delivery to tissues for healing and promotes proper coordination for your muscles, organs and body systems which speed the healing process. Osteopathy relies on the body's ability to self-heal and self-regulate.
